Record Description

This index is an electronic index for the years 1618 to 1923. It is not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records. This index is not complete for any particular place or region. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.

Record Content and Use

For details about the contents of these records and help using them see the wiki article Births and Christenings Vital Record Index Collections (FamilySearch Historical Records).

Known Problems With This Collection

Parish records for Ålborg Vor Frue, Nørre Tranders, and Sønder Tranders parishes were originally filmed on the same roll of microfilm. When this microfilm was copied and divided for extraction, some of the copies were labeled with the wrong parish name. These incorrect parish names were carried over into the index. For example, several years worth of records for Nørre Tranders parish show Ålborg Vor Frue as the event place in the index.

Always check the actual place name for events found in this index for these three parishes. Digital images of the original church records can be viewed online at no charge at the website for the Danish State Archives at by setting up a free account. Viewing the records requires a Windows operating system and Java.
